There are a variety of model numbers and if you purchased in Taiwan it could be a number of these numbers depending on where the phone was sourced from. They all start with N900 and then more numbers or letters. If your phone says that then it is original. Otherwise, you purchased a clone.

How do I know fake Note4 from real Note4?

I want to know fake Samsung Galaxy Note4 from real Samsung Galaxy Note4

There are so many ways to check as mentioned in the VisiHow main article on this page and the QnA section. If you are purchasing online you will want to stick with a reputable dealer such as Newegg or ask the dealer to give you a screen shot of the About Phone so that you can check against Note4 Model numbers. The biggest rule of thumb is that if the price is too good to pass up then it is probably a clone. A newer phone of this caliber should retail at $600 US or more depending on if it was used, refurbished or slightly new as in a trade from a remorseful seller.

More questions and answers

Can I use my phone number securely?

Is it possible for anyone to easily hack my number? I have this doubt because it's bought from outside India.. I think it was caused by: Continuously getting unknown calls.

Getting unknown calls is not a sign of being hacked per say. Still, if you are worried then get some anti-spyware app on your phone. The most likely answer to your Unknown call could be two factors of either you got a recycled number where bill collectors are hounding that person or your number is on a call list for marketers. Ask to switch your number with your phone company and then see if the calls continue. You can also block these calls or manage them with numerous apps from Google Play.
